World Shorinji Kempo Organization (WSKO)

Shorinji Kempo was created in Japan but it started spreading to the rest of the world in the late 1960s. Today, it is taught and practiced in 37 countries (as of Apr. 2016) worldwide. All the country federations and their branches of WSKO are actively engaged not only in the training of Shorinji Kempo but also in various social service activities. Shorinji Kempo which was created by one person, Doshin So, now functions as a heart-to-heart bridge connecting people all over the world and promotes
vigorous international exchanges across boundaries of race, culture, religion, and language.
